“Money is milk and milk is money,


and money is power pouring endlessly
into the black hole's insatiable appetite
of this world's money milkers ...”
— Marvin Thomas Cox Flynn

This article is inspired by, and dedicated to, my friend,


Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Revelations often go unnoticed in this world gone blind and deaf—dumbed


down and utterly mad—as our society is seduced and reduced to animals by The
Disciples of Greed: The World Banking System, Corporate Businesses,
Governments, Insurance Companies, Organized Religion, Retirement Investment
Companies, etc. Now, if we are truly being reduced to no more than animals, what
type of animals might these exampled organizations consider us as being, as they
craftily and covertly invert everything in our society—resulting in an eventual total
inversion of society, itself, creating a topsy turvy societal world turned wrong side
out and stood on its head in a fermenting manure pile—with good being transformed
into evil, and evil handily transformed into good, before our very eyes and, yet, we do
not see what is taking place due to our self centered delusional illusions of freedom?

Why would I say such a thing of institutions that are believed to render a great
service to mankind? Do I suggest that these entities are less than benign? Well, let's
just say that old McDonald kept turkeys on his farm for a reason, and it wasn't just to
combat insect infestation on the ole homestead. He loved turkeys, and Thanksgiving
Day loomed just over the horizon. Think back to that old song we loved so well, and
all the wonderful animals sounds that said, “Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.”
What ominous message lurks within this song that we fail to see? Did any of the
animals on old McDonald's farm comprehend that they were there for a purpose?
Ask yourself another question: What purpose does a deer feeder, and a deer
blind, truly serve? Are either truly beneficial to deer? The feeder is an ingeniously
clever device that gives forth the illusion of representing the generosity and
benevolence of mankind, but in reality its sole purpose is to fatten the deer up, and
bait the deer out, for the kill they are far too dumb to see coming, because that is why
it is called a deer blind—the deer have been rendered blind—their instincts
anesthetized—to the danger around them.
Like deer, we are being baited out—blinded to that virtual reality.
“But by whom?” Is your plea. “What is it we fail so miserably to see?”
We fail to see that money does not serve the purpose of setting us free, but of
making us slaves to those we work for in attaining it, and those we owe in having
borrowed it, as part of a never ending cycle of milking humanity's middle and lower
classes—as literal cows—for all we shall ever be worth. Thus, our money is truly
equivalent to milk and we are truly equivalent to milk cows—dumb cattle—bred and
fed, on old McDonald's farm, for the sole purpose of producing milk until that day
their productivity drops below acceptable levels to eventually find them meet their
fate upon a slaughterhouse killing floor.
How do we cope with this all too true reality of our existence? What can we
do, in a nation where the cost of living mercilessly rises disproportionately to any
hopes of wage and salary increases? The truth is, many Americans are barely
surviving on what they are able to bring home after deductions. It seems as though,
every time we think are going to make an extra dollar, something comes along to
hungrily scoop it right out of our hands.
We shall save some milk (money) for ourselves, we believe, but the milkers
always find a way to obtain even that milk (money) we dare to think we are saving—
have come to believe we have saved.
And so we are assured that if we put our milk (money) in a (milking) bank that

The Disciples Of Greed by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn Page 2


our milk (money) will be safe, and will grow into more milk (money) to pay those who
milk us dry on a daily basis. We are being baited1 out. Baiting2 is a sales technique.
Allow me to pose a question: Why would anyone have you bury your milk
(money) in a hole they have helped you to dig? The answer is so very obvious in
pretending not to steal what they have helped you to conceal. We are being baited
out.
Never does it enter our minds that the milk (money) banks are owned by the
world's milk (money) bankers whose thirst for milk (money) can never be quenched.
One more revelation? Not only is our money—as the cattle we are—equivalent
to milk sucked from the udder coffers of our salaries and savings, but our milk
(money) is equivalent to power. Therefore, those who hold and possess the milk
(money) possess the power, leaving us powerless to do anything about it, to date
anyway. Clearly, those doing the baiting are masters of their craft.
To top even this unpleasant reality, we are ever so deceptively and
incredulously led to believe that our employers (small businesses) give us the means
to make milk (money), but we are clueless to the fact that our employers (small
businesses) are mere employees and representative front milk (money) men of the
milk (money) bankers, as they milk, both, employees (lower quality more abundant
milk [money] cows), and their employers (better quality less abundant milk [money]
cows), of their udder sustenance of milk (money) via the corporate banking milking
machine. This great machinery, in existence around the world, is owned and
operated by those slyly crafty individuals who are, truly, master baiting (money)
milkers.
We are all, in reality, nothing more than cattle living within the illusion of
freedom, ourselves, the very milkers we work for, and the milkers we owe (with us as
the poor milk [money] cows as cattle sandwiched in the middle between a rock and a
hard place), for one way or an udder the master baiting (money) milkers plan to take
every drop of milk (money) they can squeeze from our mindless teats—via the legal
appearance avenue of Corporate Businesses working in collusion of complicity as
partners and shareholders with this same milk (money) corporate banking milking
machine.
Einstein is reputed to have said that, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and
over again, and expecting different results.” Our minds are conditioned
(brainwashed), by the corporate banking milking machine, to put our milk (money) in
their milk (money) banks, for them to use and make more milk (money) with. Logic

The Disciples Of Greed by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn Page 3


would dictate that they (the master baiting [money] milkers) should pay us for the
privilege of using our milk (money).
But, to the contrary—except within the deceptive guise of savings accounts—
they wish to charge us for the services of maintaining a checking account record of
our milk (money) that they are using daily to become increasingly filthy rich. Now,
you would think that they should be more than quite willing to keep accurate records
of that which they owe us—and that for free. They (the master baiting [money]
milkers) use our money every single hour of every single day to get richer, and
richer, and richer, and never offer us a damn dime, unless we agree to leave our milk
(money) in one of their magical savings accounts, generally for a predetermined
length of time, where we are further deceived into believing they will repay us what
they owe us with a minuscule dab of interest.
They will throw us a few milk (money) crumbs, here and there, but you had best
know, and accept, that the only interest the corporate banking milking machine (the
master baiting [money] milkers) has is to make more milk (money) off of your milk
(money) without spending or investing a dime of their own milk (money).
A true sign that the world banking system (corporate banking milking machine)
is a not so benign institution that does not assist us for free, and, in fact, serves as a
less than advantageous symbiotic leach upon our society—a clear and present
danger kind of sign that states boldly that they (the master baiting [money] milkers)
are f##king users, and we are milk (money) cow losers? Simple, ask for a loan out of
some of the gazillions of dollars they have made in interest off of your milk
(money)—let alone the milk (money) they have made off of charging you to keep
track of the milk (money) you have allowed them to use—and you will find that these
same master baiting (money) milkers now wish to charge you interest for borrowing
the interest milk (money) they have made off with like bandits in using your milk
(money) to get ever filthy stinking rich enough to hold you, lowly milk (money) cow
that you are, hostage with your own milk (money)—a very interestingly interesting
inversion of matters of interest in relation to what is, and is now not, assessed as
right and wrong.
God forbid, if you should miscalculate in having assessed how much of your
milk (money), they are holding, that you need to make use of for yourselves, and
somehow you become overdrawn—you now having used a dollar ninety nine of the
profits they have made in investing your money for profit—they (the master baiting

The Disciples Of Greed by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn Page 4


[money] milkers) will now require you to, not only pay back the amount of your
miscalculation but, pay an overdraft fee to milk you of just a tad more than an udder
that has already been milked utterly dry.
And brother, don't look to your government for help, because—no matter what
they say—all governments of every nation are illicitly complicit and disgracefully
naked in bed with those one and the same master baiting (money) milking bankers,
participating as do Corporate Businesses, in shareholding and profit sharing in
cooperation with that insidiously nefarious entity known as the World 3 Bank4—that
central authoritative hub (circle jerk?) where all the supreme master baiting (money)
milkers practice their sacredly secret black magic art of master baiting behind closed
doors. One cannot help but wonder if there is a supreme leader over such a bi-
party's-on council of refined master baiting (money) milkers of orgasmic interest, or
if there is simply a short strawed, well lubed, pivot man.
Reality in America 101: Our government that was established as an act of
rebellion against, and in protest of, taxation without representation, taxes us for
every dollar we bust our asses to earn. But, that's not enough to satiate their greed
for more money, because, then, they charge us sales tax for spending our money that
has already been taxed. If we endeavor to live the American dream in owning a
home, we pay property tax. If we seek to save up for that dream home, by placing
money in a savings account, then, there is also tax upon that which, once again, has
already been taxed. We are taxed, if we work … We are taxed, if we spend … We are
taxed, if we save … And then we are taxed, if we inherit, or if those we love inherit
upon our deaths (Estate Tax5) … Oh, and by the way, thanks to our current master
baiting (money) milker President's agenda, we may soon be faced with a virtual
Death Tax6, where you die once, but are taxed twice.7 Americans are indisputably
taxed to death, and all of this is tied directly into that corporate banking milking
machine of the master baiting [money] milkers. Is there any hope of light at the end
of that milk (money) taxation tunnel? Well, how much light emanates from a black
hole? … There's your answer ...
But, we are told that if we keep our noses to the grindstone—yeah that
grindstone that is steadily grinding away at the very teats of our udder ability to
make a living—and invest our milk (money) in a retirement 8 plan9 (401K10 for
example) we shall be able to sit back comfortably in our old age and live like kings—
as that 1998 movie, The Man In The Iron Mask 11, quickly comes to mind, with us as
the imprisoned heir to the throne, of retirement, wearing the iron mask, and the

The Disciples Of Greed by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn Page 5


retirement plan (money) milkers as the reigning king who is more interested in milk
(money) and bedding women.
What they do not tell you is that they (the master baiting [money] milkers) are
once again making themselves accessible (and you stupidly complicit), again, to your
milk (money) so that they can (again?) make untold gazillions off of your milk
(money), and reward you with a few milk (money) crumbs. Unless, of course, for
some reason you should choose to opt out (maybe you wised up?) for early
retirement, having come to the brilliant conclusion that they are banking (its a play
on words, no?) on you never living long enough to collect even a fraction of what
they owe you in milk (money) crumbs alone, much less all they have greedily gained
with your milk (money) investment.
Oh, yes, and let's not forget this world's insurance businesses, operating as a
form of legalized extortion and paid protection, that are also in cahoots with the
master baiting milk (money) bankers, Corporate Businesses, and World
Governments. How do we know that they are in cahoots? Insurance companies
lobby12 on, both, federal and state13 governmental levels, with incentives of campaign
contributions,14 to attain their goals, and you can bet your sweet ass that their goals
are not intended to put more milk (money) in your pocket, but in theirs. Insurance
companies exerting their influence, by way of lobby 15 and campaign contributions, is
why we have states that require mandatory liability auto insurance, a slick move on
their part that gives the impression of protecting all drivers from the uninsured, in the
event of an accident, but for all practical purposes assures auto insurance companies
a captive audience of guaranteed clientele that have no choice, short of walking, but
to do business with them, or pay a stiff penalty if they are caught driving without
liability insurance. Automobile liability insurance is just one such example, which
assures them all the milk (money) cows will come their way so that they can do what
they can to suck them dry. After all every thug must have his cut and share of the
booty one way or udder. Cut to the chase? We don't have a prayer …
Speaking of prayers, that will cost you some milk (money) as well, for, as they
say, “Religion that costs nothing, does nothing.” Thus, Organized Religion, through
the crafty guise of your neighborhood church, mosque, or synagogue, will pump you
for a tidy ten percent, and you better believe that they expect their cut off the top,
based upon your gross milk (money) production, or else you are a poor example of, a
good Christian, a good Muslim, or a good Jew. But it does not end there, because
there is the matter of freewill offerings and tithes to be dealt with for, “It is more

The Disciples Of Greed by Marvin Thomas Cox-Flynn Page 6


blessed to give than to receive.” … Baiting at work, par excellence ...
So, we eke out our existences harnessed to the (money) milking machines of the
master baiting (money) milkers whom we have deceptively been led to trust and
accept, in believing that they are good guys who will protect us from all those who
would cheat us out of, or steal, our milk (money). This, ongoing delusional reality
upon planet earth, is tantamount to sheep—as the Sheeple-People 16 milk (money)
cows and cattle that we are—entrusting their lives to wolves, whom they have come
to foolishly believe will protect them from predators.
It is hilariously ironic that we have been blinded beyond stupidity, beyond the
level of morons, to believe that we are free, and that we possess the power and right
of free choice in our lives. Well, I guess we do … If one considers living out their
lives harnessed to the (money) milking machine, of the disciples of greed, to be
freedom, and not the enslavement as corralled, contained, cattle that it is …
In closing this highly opinionated article of cynical satire, with a lighthearted
attempt at some semblance of humor, it is my hope that you, my readers, leave my
babbling with the realization that what I have shared, in poking fun at these
established institutions of our every days lives, is much more truth than fiction,
poetry, fantasy, or any science fiction tale, an imaginative writer could ever dream of
setting to page. We are baited out on a daily basis by these very institutions, and
others which time and page will not allow elaborating upon, that are believed to
stand as bastions of the very foundations of our society … And so it is true that they
are, not for the good we have been taught to assume but, out of planned design to
enslave our minds, for we are but creatures of the milking kind… I bid thee adieu
with a simple, “Moo!”

1 Baited Out—Bait: “A small amount of food used to attract and catch a fish or animal: The fishermen bought some worms to use as bait. › fig. Bait is
also anything used to persuade someone to do something: Lawyers making the investment offering will find out today whether someone is ready to take the
bait. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/bait
2 Baiting—bait and switch: “n. a dishonest sales practice in which a business advertises a bargain price for an item in order to draw customers into the
store and then tells the prospective buyer that the advertised item is of poor quality or no longer available and attempts to switch the customer to a more
expensive product. Electronic items such as stereos, televisions, telephones are favorites, but there are also loan interest rates which turn out to be only for
short term or low maximums, and then the switch is to a more expensive loan. In most states this practice is a crime and can also be the basis for a personal
lawsuit if damages can be proved. The business using "bait and switch" is an apt target for a class action since there are many customers but each
transaction scarcely warrants the costs of a suit alone.” http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Bait-and-switch
3 World Bank Whistleblower Reveals Massive Corruption—“You need to know about this woman! Former Senior Counsel to the World Bank, Karen
Hudes, unleashed recent interviews that should shatter any remaining fairytales about a functional and law-abiding system of banking and government. The
good news is that she’s part of a network of World Bank whistleblowers, working tirelessly to bring out the facts. And in her recent interviews, she names
the names of people who are actively suppressing the facts, exposes the media for being one giant corporate shill, and reveals that all of the U.S. governors
and attorneys general have been notified.
Matt Taibbi’s recent “Everything Is Rigged” piece could not be more timely, and apparently it’s right on target. But now we have it from people working in
the highest echelons of the banking system. Check out Karen’s numerous recent interviews. For example, this one on Coast to Coast (starting at 42:38) or
the three-parter archived on her site, with Jim Fetzer from Veterans Today. Taibbi didn’t tell you about World Bank board members being blackmailed, but
Karen does! I don’t want to spoil the “truth is stranger than fiction” experience for you. But these interviews are going to rock your world beyond
Wikileaks and Bradley Manning.
And by the way, Karen trashes the SEC as being completely captured by the banksters, so there goes any hope of them approving meaningful
crowdfunding activities, as per the JOBS Act.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kevin-lawton/world-bank-whistleblower_b_3350872.html
4 World Bank Spins Out Of Control: Corruption, Dysfunction Await New President—“It’s presidential inauguration time in Washington. Not for the
person who will helm the federal government–that comes in six months–but instead for Dr. Jim Yong Kim, the man taking the reins of an organization even
more lumbering, and far less accountable: the World Bank.
With 188 member countries and an army of 9,000 employees and consultants, Kim will lead one of the world ’s most powerful institutions–charged with
saving the world’s poor–but also one of its most dysfunctional. It is an endlessly expanding virtual nation-state with supranational powers, a 2011 aid
portfolio of $57 billion and little oversight by the governments that fund it. And–according to dozens of interviews over the past few weeks, atop hundreds
more over the past five years, plus a review of thousands of pages of internal documents– problems have gotten worse, not better, at the World Bank
despite more than a decade of reform attempts. Kim, the Dartmouth College president tapped by President Obama to lead the bank, stands little chance of
fixing things, say insiders, unless he is prepared to completely revamp the current system. “ The inmates are running the asylum, ”says a former director.”

6 Death Tax—Obama's Proposed 68% Death Tax Would Be Highest In World: “... President Obama says he will simplify our complex tax code and make
it fairer. One ‘loophole’ he says is egregious is step up in basis. Although assets upon death may be subject to estate tax, the assets are stepped up to market
value for income tax purposes. Otherwise, one could pay both income and estate tax on the same dollars … Under the President’s proposal, the estate tax
would balloon. Stephen Moore of the Heritage Foundation calculates that by eliminating basis step up, we would end up with the world’s highest estate tax
rate. Dick Patten, chairman of the Family Business Defense Council calculates an effective death tax rate of 57%. If you add in state inheritance taxes, the
combined tax rate could go as high as 68% ...” http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertwood/2015/02/03/obamas-proposed-68-death-tax-would-be-highest-in-

7 Obama Budget Creates Second Death Tax—“The Obama budget calls for a stealth increase in the death tax rate from 40% to nearly 60%. Here's how it
works:
Under current law, when you inherit an asset your basis in the asset is the higher of the fair market value at the time of death or the decedent's original
basis. Almost always, the fair market value is higher.
Under the Obama proposal, when you inherit an asset your basis will simply be the decedent's original basis.
Example: Dad buys a house for $10,000. He dies and leaves it to you. The fair market value on the date of death is $100,000. You sell it for $120,000.
Under current law, you have a capital gain of $20,000 (sales price of $120,000 less step up in basis of $100,000). Under the Obama plan, you have a capital
gain of $110,000 (sales price of $120,000 less original basis of $10,000).
There are exemptions for most households, but this misses the larger point: the whole reason we have step up in basis is because we have a death tax. If
you are going to hold an estate liable for tax, you can't then hold the estate liable for tax again when the inheritor sells it. This adds yet another redundant
layer of tax on savings and investment. It's a huge tax hike on family farms and small businesses.
It's like a second death tax (the first one has a top tax rate of 40% and a standard deduction of $5.3 million/$10.6 million for surviving spouses).
Conceivably, an accumulated capital gain could face a 40% death tax levy and then a 28% capital gains tax on what is left. Do the math, and that's an
integrated federal tax of just under 60% on inherited capital gains.” https://www.atr.org/obama-budget-creates-second-death-tax

10 Company 401(k) plans: The dirty secret—One of the basics of retirement planning — contributing to a tax-deferred 401(k) plan — could come with a
serious downside, said "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer .
"As much as I like the tax-favored status of 401(k) plans, I need to tell you something heretical, something almost nobody else will come out and say: Most
company 401(k) plans stink," he said.
"They have high management fees and administrative costs that eat into your returns, and worst of all, they typically offer you lousy choices for your
investments and not nearly enough control over them," Cramer added. "The 401(k) business is a racket for the managers who get to charge you these fees.
If you have the wherewithal Jim Cramer thinks the best way to maximize your investments is with a diversified portfolio of 5 to 10 individual stocks.
And typically a 401(k) plan doesn't allow for that. "They only let you choose from mutual funds, bond funds and perhaps index funds."
Cramer reminded that the whole premise of Mad Money is predicated on his belief that you can do better than many pros by actively managing your
portfolio.
"Sometimes it feels like the whole 401(k) system was set up to benefit the financial services industry, not you," Cramer added.

14 Campaign Contributions By Insurance Companies—Campaign contributions by insurance companies—“Health, life, property and car insurance
companies, agents and brokers are all included in the insurance industry, which is a major contributor to federal campaigns. (HMO's which are not
included in this industry, are profiled separately in the health sector.)

In the 2012 election cycle, the insurance industry contributed a record $58.7 million to federal parties and candidates as well as outside spending groups.
Of the nearly $55 million that went to parties and candidates, 68 percent went to Republicans, who have long been the recipients of most of this category's
giving.
Passage of the Affordable Care Act, which became law in 2010, brought significant change to the health insurance industry. While the legislation was
pending, major health insurers said they supported the law while actually working against it. But they have been heavily involved in trying to shape
resulting regulations, and -- after the new law's difficult initial rollout -- many insurers have indicated they want to participate in the state-by-state
marketplaces.
The industry spent more than $154 million on federal lobbying efforts in 2013. Flood insurance, terrorism risk insurance and data security were among
the issues that concerned the non-health insurer members of this grouping.” http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/background.php?cycle=2016&ind=f09
15 Top Insurance Lobbyists On Capitol Hill—“The Hill, a popular Capitol Hill insider publication with political news and opinions, has placed five
insurance groups and their lobbyists on its 2015 list of the top lobbyists in Washington for associations.
The insurance trade groups making The Hill’s list are America’s Health Insurance Plans, the American Council of Life Insurers, the American Insurance
Association, the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, and the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America.
“Those named to this year’s list have climbed to the top of their profession, demonstrating an ability to influence Washington’s power brokers on behalf of
the interest groups, corporations and industries they represent,” The Hill says in its introduction.
The listing not a power ranking; lobbyists are listed alphabetically.
The insurance groups are among others representing a variety of industries including technology, energy, banking, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.
Among lobbyists for the property/casualty insurance industry, the Capitol Hill publication cites Leigh Ann Pusey of the AIA for 20 years of advocacy; Bob
Rusbuldt and Charles Symington, IIABA, for the extension of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act in particular; and Nathaniel Wienecke, PCI, also for TRIA
and work on cyber security legislation.
The Hill says it will also be publishing a list of top lobbyists for corporations.” http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2015/10/28/386457.htm
16 Sheeple-People—A word and term I find myself favoring in my attempt to communicate the all too factual reality that people tend to allow themselves
—even seem to want—to be led, watered, and fed, much like sheep, trusting others with decisions and truths regarding their lives, their futures, their
welfare, and their safety, rather then shouldering up such responsibilities themselves as individuals, in finding and enjoying the comfort of numbers. The
word sheeple was first coined by actress and Wall Street Journal writer, Barbara Anderson, in 1984.
